Our Family had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. Located in a beautiful piece of mountain paradise called Sapphire Valley. We selected the week between Christmas and New Year. Our Family had plenty to do in the home between board games, puzzles, TV, air hockey, etc. or simply enjoying our mornings by the fireplace and just talking and catching up. We most certainly took advantage of the beautiful mountains by taking hikes and enjoying the waterfalls. We also wrapped up the week with an exciting visit to the Biltmore House and it's beautiful Christmas decorations. What a wonderful week our Family of nine had in this beautiful home. Our spoiled Golden Doodle had a wonderful time as well and the house was very accomodating for our pet. I highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone who is looking for a great getaway in first class accommodations!

Fantastic vacation house in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation that included two daughters, their husbands and four grand kids ages 5, 3 1/2, 8 and 3 months. The house was set up perfectly for all the families with separate bathrooms for each; toys and games for the kids to play with; a spacious kitchen; great furnishings throughout the house; and spacious decks to enjoy in the morning and evening. There was also a fire ring out behind the house where we made s'mores to the delight of the kids. Add to this the amenities of Sapphire Valley and it's an unbeatable combination. No doubt the nicest house we've rented from VRBO. We'll be back.

Amazing 2 family stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Black Dog Cabin! Owners were flexible and available. The cabin was clean and well stocked! We were traveling with children and it came complete with a toy room! The house had beautiful furnishings but was kid friendly. We loved the area and utilized the gorgeous fire pit. It was close to the skiing and tubing at sapphire mountain! It was our first time there, but we would most definitely go back!!! Plenty of room for 2 families and then some!!

The cabin far exceeded our expectations. Everything was exactly as it was pictured. We rented this cabin specifically because we could all sit at the table together (there were 10 of us) and the dining area was picture perfect. Everything about this cabin was absolutely wonderful. Very clean, convenient, accommodating, fun and everything you need (besides your food, clothes and guest) is provided. The owner was very accommodating and responded to every question asked. We have decided to make this a yearly trip and specifically to this cabin. The scenery was breath taking and the fire pit was an added treat. We hate that we are leaving tomorrow; we could stay here forever!

This is truly a fantastic cabin/home! Can't say enough about the owner, they were great to work with, always answered our questions in a timely manner.

The house is absolutely stunning and immaculate. We arrived before the scheduled check-in time and the housekeeper was still working. Thus, we ventured to the grocery store to stock up for the week. When we returned we were amazed at how beautiful and how well kept this home is. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary utensils and plates and misc items. Loved the super large dining room table where we could all gather together for meals. Lots of deck space to be outside, and also a grill which was great for steaks and burgers. The house was large enough for everyone to find a quiet spot to "get away" when needed, but also seemed warm and cozy when we wanted to be together playing games or watching tv. The kids loved the downstairs area with the tv and the pool table. Lots to do in the area. We went horseback riding (about a 20 minute drive), went on a zip line course over near Scaly Mountain, and of course the girls went shopping in Highland's! On a scale of 1-10 this place is a 15, and one we hope to go back and visit again.

Simply Marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Black Dog Cabin for ten days with my family. There were nine of us (which included two toddlers). Black Dog Cabin is not a cabin; it is a lovely mountain home more similar to a lodge. The knotty pine and high ceilings are stunning. It is spacious enough to be able to go off into one of the bedrooms and get some alone time, which I needed! The kitchen is fully stocked and the dining room table easily accommodated all of us at mealtime. We spent a lot of time at this table, talking, playing cards, eating, etc.

We lounged in the living room on leather sofas and occasionally watched the large flat screen TV, which came in really handy when we needed to occupy the toddlers' for a little bit. The downstairs playroom and adult seating area (with another flat screen) was used quite a bit too. This home is great when you have kids with you!

The two master bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs were used by my children and their child. They were large enough to accommodate the two adults and a pack and play for each child.

This was my third stay at Black Dog Cabin and I will return as soon as I possibly can. It is just right for my family and we feel like royalty when we stay there. The house is immaculate, well maintained and just beautiful. The setting is stunning and the quiet peace of the North Carolina Mountains cannot be beat. The owner is easy to talk to yet very professional. We were lucky to find this place.
